Title IX Update... As I suspected, today's Jessica Hopp story reprinting a National Women's Law Center presentation on Title IX is wrong when it states:

Title IX legislation requires the scholarship and participation numbers to be within one percent of each other (or one scholarship, whichever is greater).

I didn't flag it at the time--though I quoted it earlier today--because I didn't want to guess, but it jibes with what author Jessica Gavora states in her book, Tilting the Playing Field, linked below.

My contact at the College Sports Council informs me (and I gather he is trying to inform Hopp) of the following:

That is nowhere in the law -- it was part of an arbitrary interpretation the Department of Education made in a simple letter they sent to several schools in 1998. That is a crucial fact because the way in which the Department has circumvented federal procedure in their enforcement of Title IX is at the heart of the case before the federal
court. We have provided the Post with advance copy of all our legal filings along with detailed explanations.

Advance copy that the Post has consistently ignored. It's very strange.
